In these times of uncertainty and imposed social and physical limitations because of the global pandemic, our daily lives have been disrupted and it is affecting our family's psychological well-being. Parents, children and marriages are under tremendous strain as dining rooms have become classrooms, and bedrooms have become home offices. Parents are trying to balance the demands of teaching their children and working from home while the whole family is forced to shelter together 24/7 with the worries of a deadly disease and the uncertainty of job security, income, and if it will ever be normal again.
This video presentation on Strengthening the Family in the Midst of a Crisis will explore how you and your family can deal with the stress and anxiety of living in the middle of a global health crisis. You will learn how to help your family handle the distress of the epidemic in practical and healthy ways so that the whole family will be more resilient both now and when the coronavirus outbreak is over.
Presented by Wainfleet BIC Church by Linda Lambert, B.A., M.Div., D.Min. Candidate;
